George, a.k.a Lord Byron, was known as the greatest British poets and his work is still widely read today. He fought against the Ottoman Empire and was known to be a hero. He was said to be very attractive and had many lovers in his time, both male and female. He sadly died at the age of 35 from a fever but still accomplished a lot and is well deserving to be admitted into the GHS British Literature Hall of Fame.
